Owens Industries fabricates precision parts for industries all over the United States, and tool & die makers everywhere rely on high-quality machinery with computers to accurately measure dimensions on the parts they build. Our CNC engineers have extensive experience with components intended for use with a wide variety of tool and die machinery. Toolmaking typically refers to the manufacturing of tools and aids often used to produce products, and common tooling includes fixtures, jigs, gauges, molds, dies, cutting equipment, and patterns. Due to the unique nature of a tool maker's work and the wide variety of intricate products in demand, it is often necessary to fabricate custom tools or modify standard tools to fit new needs.
A die is a specialized tool used in manufacturing to cut or shape material, mostly using a press. Products made with dies range in size from small to complex pieces, including punches, dies, steel rule dies, and die sets. Precision is key in die making; punches and dies must maintain proper clearance to produce parts accurately, and it’s often necessary to have die sets machined with tolerances of less than one-thousandth of an inch.
If you work in the tool & die making industry, and you need new precision parts made for your machinery, contact Owens Industries to fabricate parts for you. Call or email us today to get a quote on our specialized services.
Tool and die production is a crucial part of many manufacturing processes, especially those producing plastic products. Intricate details and tight tolerances are regularly demanded by OEMs to satisfy their customer base. Owens Industries is an ISO Certified machine shop offering the highest quality tool and die services to improve your manufacturing results. We utilize the highest precision CNC techniques to achieve the impossible, including:
Swiss CNC machining is another option for gaining the parts you need for tool and die making. This precision manufacturing uses CNC unit-operated lathes to rotate parts when cutting. These machines have a micromachining range of 1mm to 4mm in diameter and each machine can perform multiple functions, saving additional time.
Along with creating parts of tool and die making, Swiss CNC machines can fabricating specialty jig and fixtures. Stop using makeshift fixtures that aren’t secure and make work harder. These custom jigs can be made to your exact specifications through our Swiss CNC machining process. You’ll have a completely accurate fixture for whatever work you do.
Tool and die makers require the most exact production to do their job right. 5 axis machining cuts across X, Y, and Z linear axes along with rotating on the A and B axes. The result is more complicated and precise cut pieces. Owens Industries use 5 axis machining to fabricate custom parts for use in tool and die making.
By using one machine to complete pieces, 5 axis machines save time in the production process. You get your finished parts faster since there is no need to move material between different machines.
Of course, your micromachining, 5-axis, or Swiss CNC machining precision parts are only as good as the operators behind them, which is why you need Owens Industries.
Whether your own CNC machines are having trouble achieving the tight tolerances or detailed intricacies your product requires, you’re in need of high-quality parts manufactured on a mass level, or you just need a few tools and dies made for your plastic injection molding company; Owens Industries offers ultra-precision CNC from industry leaders. As an ISO 9001:2015 Certified CNC Machine Shop that only employs the highest trained professionals, you’re assured that each and every one of our services exceed industry quality standards. We are equipped to successfully machine complex die and mold parts, parts with small internal Radii (.0015 inch), small slot details, and spray nozzles.
